Research

After the revival of the making and use of handcrafted soap, the competition of the soap-industry with traditional soap making began, and not in a flattering way. However, also independent scientists started to research the so-called cold-processed soap, or handcrafted soap, and the related pH values. Their research results created trust in what I am making and are going to sell. I archived the most essential researches and publications, so that everybody can find information about the facts.

One of the most striking facts is that soap is never nature-friendly, not either when the soap is natural, organic, not even when soap- and detergent sellers state their product can be used in nature, “because it is biodegradable”. Reason: the pH value of any kind of soap, and the pH value of rivers, oceans, lakes, and soils differ from area to area and are intertwined with the natural balance of each single unique biotope. Nature needs decades to restore its pH level, and mostly it never recovers.

It is therefore important to know how to use soap, what kind of soap, why, where and when. Ingredients are essential. The most simple formula is the best. More than one sort of oil does not make the soap a better one. The oldest soaps date from the Babylonian era, about 2800 B.C., and were olive oil soaps.

6. pH values

Attention: to learn to understand pH values, it is necessary to read all following information about pH. Note: the pH value of ocean water is 8,2; the pH level of a stream is 6,0; drinking water has a level that varies between 6,5 and 8,5; cold processed soap has a level that varies between 9 and 10. Cretan Garden soap pH is 9. The pH of olive oil can not be measured, because it does not contain water, but olive oil is categorized as alkaline.
